Welcome to the Practical Scrappers "Linking with Love" Blog Hop!  If you have come from Michelle Roycroft's blog, you are in the right place. If you are not, and you'd like to take part in this hop, please visit Practical Scrappers.

We believe it is important to always give credit when it is due to another crafter.  For this unique hop all of our design team members used the same inspiration piece to create their project.  Each of them will make an example of themselves as to how to properly "Link with Love" and credit the inspiration.  We'll be running the hop thru Noon EST on Sunday - so you have plenty of time to get thru it!

Liz Qualman created this beautiful layout and we have all used it for inspiration.  Each of us will tell what part we took our inspiration from.  The whole hop will culminate at Liz's blog where she'll provide us with a new sketch for inspiration.


Last Saturday, my five year old daughter, one of the youngest in her Kindergarten class, woke up and wrote a complete story (in English, which is not even her language) which she then illustrated, book covers and all! In order to do so, she first made a draft (she's got a very good teacher, so she is well trained!!!) and then created a book. As any proud mom, I wanted to keep that book somewhere where it wouldn't get lost, but could not scrap all of it, and didn't want to cut it either. So, I asked her for her draft, and made a copy of her pictures to use as embellies. And included a pocket for the story behind my layout. The inspiration I got from Liz's layout is the colourful circles, which I placed in the bottom half, and the general happy feel of the whole layout. Here is my layout:
